Rick! I hope you are well.
I've been trying to come up with a good heater solution. That's actually the one big questionmark for me. The previous owner seems to have sailed her a lot, and lived aboard, but he always lived at a slip with electric. So, there are 3 or 4 heaters aboard, but they are all electric (at least as far as I recall). I think I'd like to find a diesel heater - I know I won't be using all the fuel in the tank most years, so burning the fuel to keep warm seems to make sense, but I need to research this more. I also need to dig through all the junk that's there and see - there may be another heat source that I overlooked (or just hadn't found) when I was aboard last time.
